My latest Fair Isle garment – a cardigan for winter 2012

ImageImageFair Isle

I made this cardigan over the last few months – July to early October 2012. I wanted to have it completed in time for the Shetland Wool Week which took place in the islands from 8th October 2012. It was a really wonderful week in the islands for knitting, spinning and weaving enthusiasts and many people came here from all over the world. I managed to take some time off work on a couple of days and took part in one of the work shops which was lead by Kate Davies and also I went off to the island of Unst for a day to see the gorgeous intricate Shetland lace on show there – some examples were very, very old and delicate.
